This past weekend, National Organization for Marriage President Brian Brown was scheduled to stop in France on his way back from Moscow to train activists with the French anti-gay group Manif Pour Tous. Manif Pour Tous is the most prominent organization working against LGBT rights in France, and has strong ties with American groups, as evidenced by its president Ludovine de la Rochere’s appearance at this year’s March for Marriage in Washington, D.C.
So what was the Manif Pour Tous event that Brown participated in like? A reporter from the French publication Le Nouvel Observateur went to the group’s “summer university,” where she was barred from individual workshops like Brown’s, but did sit in on the general sessions, where she captured the following astounding quote from de la Rochere:
Depuis l’adoption de la loi du mariage pour tous, il y a eu 721 requêtes d’adoption par des couples homosexuels. Donc il va y avoir 721 enfants orphelins de plus, au nom de la loi!
Which translates roughly to:
Since the adoption of the law of marriage for all, there were 721 requests for adoption by homosexual couples. So there will be 721 more orphaned children, in the name of the law!
Yes, according to de la Rochere, children raised by same-sex couples end up as orphans.
This kind of rhetoric is similar to what Brown has been pushing in his travels, warning Russian lawmakers last year that adoption by same-sex couples deprives children of their “right to have normal parents: a father and a mother.”
WorldNetDaily today warns that the United Nations is preparing to “dump a flood of Muslim refugees on U.S. cities,” which anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller tells the right-wing outlet is all part of a UN-Islamist plan to take over America.
“You can’t make this stuff up,” Geller said of the supposed plot.
Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch echoed Geller, telling WND, “Basically you have those who want to take over (countries) through immigration saying to the jihadists ‘you guys need to stop cutting people’s heads off and be patient.’”
Pamela Geller, author of “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance,” said it should come as no surprise that the U.N. would do everything in its power to flood the United States with as many Muslim refugees as possible.
She said the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, or OIC, which is comprised of 56 Muslim countries and the Palestinian Authority, makes up the largest voting bloc at the U.N. General Assembly.
“They’re very powerful, they’re very dangerous,” Geller said. “You can’t make this stuff up.”
Geller, Corcoran and others such as Islam scholar Bat Ye’or have long warned that there are two methods of creating Islamic supremacy in the world. One is through violent jihad. The other is through al-hijra, or the Islamic doctrine of immigration.
“Basically you have those who want to take over (countries) through immigration saying to the jihadists “you guys need to stop cutting people’s heads off and be patient,’” Corcoran said. Al-hijra will accomplish the same goal over the long term in countries open to immigration, which includes the United States and most of Europe.
The U.S. takes in about 70,000 foreign refugees per year, more than any other country in the world. Besides the U.S., Germany and Sweden have also agreed to take in Syrian refugees through the U.N. program. Germany has agreed to accept another 10,000 Syrian refugees after already absorbing 6,000, while Sweden has agreed to accept up to 17,000 over the next year.
Trunews host Rick Wiles knows why President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama — or as Wiles refers to them, “Barry Benghazi Obama” and “Michael Obama” — worked with the nonprofit group KaBoom! on this year's 9/11 anniversary: they were signaling to terrorists to hit American schools.
Wiles said that the Obamas’ participation in the KaBoom! playground-building event to mark the National Day of Service and Remembrance is proof that they are “signaling that the next 9/11-style terrorist attack will be American schools going kaboom. Barack Obama is a stealth jihadist.”
Most of Glenn Beck's crazy theories seem to originate somewhere in his gut, beginning with little more than a "feeling" that something is wrong and then migrating to his brain where he attempts to shape it into some quasi-coherent theory with varying degrees of success before eventually expelling it out his mouth.
Watching the process take place is truly something to behold and it happened not once, but twice, during yesterday's morning staff meeting as Beck first sought to explain why President Obama is using the term "ISIL" instead of "ISIS," though he struggled mightly to do so because the theory that he came up with did not fit with his worldview or even make any sense.
Later in the meeting, Beck went through the process again when he issued a dire warning about the upcoming vote on Scottish independence, saying that it would lead to widespread civil war and "global destabilization."
After admitting that something about this independence vote bothers him but he doesn't really know what it is or why, Beck concluded that world leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin are "licking their chops over this" because it can be used to justify splitting apart Ukraine while setting a precedent for "civil war all over the world," as Beck spun out some convoluted theory about how this vote for independence is "going the opposite direction of where the power is going," whatever that means.
"This is what my gut's been telling me," Beck said. "There's something wrong here. There's something really big ... there's a really huge consequence to this. That's what it is. This leads to global destabilization":
On her radio program today, the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios promoted the upcoming Ex-Gay Awareness Month — at which she will be receiving the prestigious “Friend of Ex-Gays Freedom Award” — by repeating a hoax story about a mother-daughter lesbian couple.
Rios read her guest, ex-gay activist Christopher Doyle, an article from the website Stuppid.com that supposedly tells the story of a mother-daughter couple named Vertasha and Mary Carter.
But as the myth-busting website Snopes.com reports, the story is a complete hoax.
“The fight against this movement, it’s like a powerful force of immorality that threatens to overtake us,” Rios said of the fictitious story, before comparing ex-gay activists like Doyle to “Muslims who don’t declare their devotion to jihad.”
Doyle added: “There’s people out there that are trying to normalize this craziness. Where does it end?”
Glenn Beck spent his entire opening monologue on his television program last night essentially scaring the living daylights out of his audience by warning that a global Ebola pandemic may be just around the corner and will be brought into the United States by Nigerian prison guards.
Citing fears that the Ebola virus could mutate into an airborne respiratory virus that could be passed by a cough or a sneeze, Beck then connected that to a "tip" he received from one of his The Blaze readers, who informed him that Texas is facing a shortage of prison guards and is therefore bringing in workers from Nigeria to fill those positions, which has reportedly been going on for years.
"There is this weird twist that nobody seems to be talking [about]," Beck said. "The only thing we know about Nigeria is that ... Ebola is breaking out! So we're hiring people from Nigeria who are going back and forth to their country. Does that really seem like a good policy, for a number of reasons? And again, what pops out is Ebola!"
"Call me crazy," he concluded, "but letting Nigerians roam freely in and out of our country as they work as correctional officers in prisons, also in transportation and food service, might seem like something we should look into":
Sen. Ted Cruz is out with a new effort today opposing President Obama’s possible executive action preventing the deportation of many undocumented immigrants living in the U.S…and in the process is raising money and collecting email addresses for Sen. Ted Cruz.
In a new website and online video, Cruz incorrectly links the crisis of unaccompanied minors at the southern border with Obama’s executive order deferring deportation for DREAMers. A voiceover in the online video says, “we cannot hope to address the crisis on the border without first addressing the fundamental cause of it,” before showing a still shot of someone climbing over the border fence.
But luckily, Cruz is here to save the day! “Senator Ted Cruz is leading the fight to secure the border, stop Obama’s amnesty and celebrate legal immigration,” he voiceover says.
The website, “StopObamasAmnesty.com,” then leads visitors to give Cruz’s fundraisers their email addresses and to donate to Cruz’s joint fundraising committee. The committee has raised over $4 million so far in this election cycle, much of it during the government shutdown that he orchestrated.
This summer, Cruz successfully lobbied a number of GOP House members to block a bill to handle the crisis of unaccompanied minors on the border. So, once again, Cruz is fundraising off a problem that he personally prevented the government from trying to solve.
On his radio show yesterday, Bryan Fischer brought up a three year-old incident in which an employee at a Halal-friendly KFC in Australia was suspended for abusing a customer who asked for bacon as concrete proof that America is a Christian nation.
"You want one single item of proof that America is a Christian nation and not a Jewish nation and not an Islamic nation?" he asked. "One single bit of proof is all you need: we freely allow restaurants and grocery stores to sell and to serve bacon. That can only happen in a Christian country."
"So the sheer fact that we freely allow the sale and consumption of bacon," he continued, "is absolute proof that we are, in fact, a Christian nation":
